When it came to wrestling in the 80s, there were really three names you needed to focus on: Hulk Hogan, Ric Flair & Randy Savage. While Hogan was the sport’s most popular & Flair it’s biggest showman, no one could make you love to hate him quite like Savage. Known for his performance at WrestleMania III with Ricky “The Dragon” Steamboat (which many dubbed the greatest wrestling match ever), Savage captured two WWE titles and was a member of numerous classic angles in WWE history including his Wedding to Ms. Elizabeth at Summer Slam 1991.

According to TMZ, Savage died today behind the wheel of his car after suffering a heart attack. He was 58.
